Gas Purifier Manufacturing Capabilities
At CRS we manufacture a popular line of standard gas filters for laboratory use, we also custom design and build gas filters for special applications. Special requests have included the following:
- Special combinations of adsorbents to deliver required output purity levels over a range of flow rates
- Special fittings or connections for quick-connect, for push-on tube connectors, or non-standard compression fittings
- Special sizes or end treatments
- CRS proprietary products include highly sensitive moisture and O2 indicators as well as very-high capacity O2 adsorbents
- CRS uses cobalt-free indicating moisture adsorbents for gas line dryers, both for high-flow low ppm applications and also to meet medium flow ppb highly demanding requirements. These adsorbents meet European requirements under REACH.
Depending on the detailed requirements, special designs and labeling can be managed for as few as 250-500 filters per year, or less if the deviations from standard products are minor.
At CRS we can measure filter performance for oxygen, water, and hydrocarbon to the 1 ppb output level against challenge gasses, and adsorbents can be qualified in house. Figure 1, below, shows the performance of an O2-removing filter processed in-house.

Our commitment to quality in our gas filters translates to more efficient and quality analysis, and less down time due to cartridge changes. Some of the design features can be illustrated with the Advanced Filter System (AFS), which can also be configured for special applications:
